Following a public appeal by a University of Maryland history professor, the American Historical Association rejected a resolution Sunday that opponents described as a politically-motivated indictment of Israel.

“The resolution to be discussed at the upcoming annual meeting of the American Historical Association (AHA) essentially is an indictment of the policies of the government of Israel towards Palestinian universities in the West Bank and Gaza,” Prof. Jeffrey Herf, whose academic specialty is twentieth century German history, writes in an op-ed for History News Network.
